    AL8000: Highly dynamic linear motors with flexible, modular design

    Backed by its wealth of expertise in the development of rotary servomotors, Beckhoff has added an innovative product to its portfolio in the area of drive technology. This new generation of high‐performance and modular linear motors was developed in cooperation with its dynamically growing subsidiary Fertig Motors.
  • TwinCAT/BSD: Multi-core-capable, Unix-compatible operating system for TwinCAT 3 real-time applications

    TwinCAT/BSD: Multi-core-capable, Unix-compatible operating system for TwinCAT 3 real-time applications

    With TwinCAT/BSD, Beckhoff presents a new operating system that combines the advantages of Windows CE – low cost and small footprint – with the numerous features of large Windows operating systems. It therefore also is an alternative to Windows 7 or 10 in many applications.
  • EL51xx: Compact and cost-effective analysis of incremental signals

    EL51xx: Compact and cost-effective analysis of incremental signals

    Incremental encoders have become indispensable in many applications. Beckhoff meets this important need with the comprehensive EL51xx EtherCAT Terminal series for analysis of 5 V incremental encoders via RS422 and TTL signals. With their extension by four highly compact and high-performance I/Os, analysis of incremental signals in the controller can now be implemented in an even more space-saving and cost-effective manner.
  • EP7402: IP67 EtherCAT I/O for conveyor control

    EP7402: IP67 EtherCAT I/O for conveyor control

    With the new EP7402 EtherCAT Box from Beckhoff, the control architecture and cabling of roller conveyor systems become significantly more efficient. The compact motor controller for BLDC motors is ideally suited for conveyor tasks in intralogistics and assembly technology as well as in the packaging, food and beverage industries.
